If you pride yourself on keeping up with design trends then you are probably eager to find out what the must-have looks and décor pieces are for 2015. After all, your friends expect you to make a major change, so they know what look they should be trying to achieve. It is hard work being the trendsetter, but someone has to do it!
Vintage Meets Contemporary
Some of the world’s most architecturally interesting cities have a mix of modern sky scrapers next to historic homes. The mix of old and new is going to be the look to have for 2015. Already have a contemporary space? You have it made! Just add a few vintage pieces, and you are all set.
2014 saw a lot more materials being mixed and this is a trend that will continue to grow. One room can easily showcase wood, wrought iron, slate, and copper. Rustic and exotic woods combined with warm metals and elegant accent pieces create a room that is sophisticated yet comfortable.
Recycled, Reclaim, and Reuse
As the environment has become more of a concern, an increased number of interior decorators are using products that are environmentally friendly. Reclaimed wood, recycled carpet, eco-friendly paint and thoughtful décor pieces will be essential. Don’t hesitate to refinish that old table you see at a yard sale. It still has a lot of life left in it, and you could be the one keeping it out of a landfill.
Just when you think water fountains can’t get any more popular, a new year comes along. Water fountains were once reserved for elite environments. Today, many consumers are purchasing them because of the healthy benefits they offer. If you don’t have one yet, or you want to expand your collection, you can find a wide variety of wall, floor, and tabletop water fountains online from stores like SoothingCompany.com.
Remember when the most coveted seating options were furniture prices that looked nothing like seating at all? Thank goodness that look is over. It is very unsettling visiting someone’s home and not knowing if you are accidentally sitting on a piece of art.
Seating is all about comfort. Create a space you love to live in and break the rules. Furniture sets are out and mixed pieces that work well together are in. Choose pieces that work for your lifestyle rather than pieces that fall under the norm. Yes, you can eliminate the sofa for bean bags.
